Kentucky coach Mark Stoops discusses challenges of facing Georgia’s loaded backfield

The Kentucky Wildcats have a tough road test on Saturday, heading to Athens to take on the SEC East-champion Georgia Bulldogs.

Coming off a win against Vanderbilt, the Wildcats still have a chance to finish second in the division, but need a win on Saturday to do so.

On Monday, coach Mark Stoops said he knows the Kentucky defense will have its hands full with Georgia RBs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. Even though Auburn limited the Bulldogs to only 46 rushing yards over the weekend, Stoops knows it won’t be easy to slow them down:

Fortunately for the Wildcats, they also have a star running back in Benny Snell Jr. He’s carried the Kentucky offense all year long and will be counted on to do the same Saturday.

The Wildcats and Bulldogs will square off on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time. The game can be seen on CBS.
